My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Dennis Mansfield
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. I am a creative, complete and connected man.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My bride, Susan. She was the first of her family line to graduate from college and to teach school. She married me with only a vision and a series of vague goals and has helped me turn those into life-changing eternally impactful accomplishments.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. In years past I would have offered up political examples, business projects or something I did when I was a Christian leader in the 1990's. But like Bill said to Socrates as Ted listened on, "All they are is dust in the wind, dude, dust in...in..the..wind". No, my greatest accomplishment is in loving my bride as Christ loves His church. Either faith is real and lasts eternally or there is no prupose in living on this earth for even the 70 or 80 years we may have. The best is yet to come.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Like a floating Ed Wynn bumping up against the ceiling in Mary Poppins' magical world, I love to laugh. I am also an encourager.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd like to meet Mark Twain. I'd ask him why he REALLY waited for a century to have his Autobiography published - with all his straight forwardness during his lifetime, why did he fail in his courage to tell people what he really thought of them and their lives when he was alive? May we all have "short accounts" with people today, during our lifetimes.
